Upcoming movie and Tea & Discussion - a two-part afternoon: 

Part 1 

When: Sunday March 13th, 2016 at 1:00 pm
The Movie: 
Les héritiers (English title: Once in a Lifetime) (2014) - part of the Maine Jewish Film Festival
Synopsis: 
D'après une histoire vraie. Au Lycée Léon Blum de Créteil (ville de la banlieue sud-est de Paris), une prof décide de faire passer un concours national d'Histoire à sa classe de seconde la plus faible. Par ce biais, les élèves font alors une rencontre qui va les transformer.
For the Maine Jewish Film Festival, Melinda Molin’s synopsis:
A no-nonsense history teacher at a rough high school on the outskirts of Paris is determined to give her underprivileged pupils the best possible education. She proposes a unique assignment to her multi-cultural class: a national competition on the theme of “Children Under the Nazi Regime.” These troubled, rebellious teens resist the project, challenging its relevance to their lives. A surprise classroom visitor inspires them to re-examine their attitudes. Winning the competition is a long shot, but working together the students begin to see each other—and themselves—in a whole new light. Based on a true story.
Where: Hannaford Hall/USM - 96 Falmouth St, Portland
